Hello Giles,

I have just begun a family tree today and see that you have entered a lot of information on my Paternal Grandparents side. I also see that you have created a profile of my Great Grandfather: William Francis Primeau 1868-1945. His daughter Lucy (Cape) is my Grandmother. I am in the process of entering a profile for her and others. Is it possible to connect? Many thanks, Janice Cape Mayuk

Hello again Gilles. I saw the email you sent me re: your email address, however it seems that I have lost it somewhere between my mobile and desktop! Would you be kind enough to send again? Also, I tried to add Primeau-358 to my grandmother's profile, however I get a message that states: Not on the Trusted List of Primeau-358.

Thanks for helping out a newbie! Janice

What ticks me off in family research?? People who don't understand the French Canadian tradition of Joseph and Marie in baptism records..... They think that 98% of the population is named Joseph and Marie. Understand people.. .that these were simply baptism names... and not their real name. Very rarely did a man actually go by the name Joseph.. and sometimes it was a compound name... like Joseph-Arthur or something or another. Joseph simply meant by tradition that it was a boy... so the first name on the registry was Joseph.. Marie simply meant that by tradition it was a girl.. so tradition would have them name the child Marie Jeannette, or Marie Charlotte, or Marie Francoise... rarely did the girls go by the name Marie.. and it was certainly not ALWAYS their first names... unless of course again it was a compound name... and then she'd go by the name Marie-Anne, or Marie-Madeleine.. or something or another.

Even my daughter who was baptized in 1988 under the name Marie Sylvie Justine something or another with a following of names including obviously the names of both great grand mothers... ... the priest instructed us to write whatever we wanted and to just to be sure to circle the name in the list of names.. under which one she would go as in life, so the government would know what her real name was. So... basically JOSEPH and MARIE are NOT the first names... they are baptismal names only.

Hello Gilles,

I'm not sure where this rant comes brom but lets just hope you're keeping with the WikiTree standards! LOL Andréa.

Yeah.. just a rant.. sorry I thought I was on facebook and letting off some steam. I'm good now... LOOL Also I must say it's been a lot better since they started allowing us to enter two names in the first name

haha.. it's all good.. I had a good laugh because I sometimes think some of the standards here are just adding to the confusion and duplicated profiles more than anything. But hey, that's how they want it! LOL

I think he is frustrated and attempting to explain the way names were given.For example I am Brenda Gail Marie.Marie is never on any legal documents and like Giles said they were given at baptism. They should not even be considered when we are searching for people because most everyone following French Canadian tradition has been given the baptismal name of Marie/Joseph.
